Does the COVID crisis present an opportunity to rethink what school? A Providence high school senior tell us what it is like schooling at home, and what school might look like if students had more choice and power.

Steve Heath is the executive director of FabNewport, a community based nonprofit teaching urban and middle high school students how code, sew, design, prototype and run machines. FabNewport's vision is that all students will have the skills, confidence and commitment to positively impact their communities and make their lives.

PVD Young makers works in partnership with the Providence Community Library, Providence Public Library to run maker spaces in all of the city's public libraries. They have many other partners, also.
